How to know if my USCIS case is approved?

You may check the progress of your case on using your receipt number, and you can register on our website for automatic case status updates while we handle your case. Processing Times: Applications are handled in the order they are received, according to the visa priority category.

When accelerated processing is used, the OIS will get an email notification from the Premium Processing Unit at the USCIS California Service Center after the petition has been accepted. Within 5-7 working days of receiving the email notification of approval, the OIS will typically get a paper copy of the H-1B approval notice.
